Best time to
visit these national park in India
Generally, you can travel to the national parks all throughout the year, but it is advisable not to travel there during the monsoons, as it is a mating season for many animals and most of the park remains closed from July to September. So It’s advised to visit there from October to June.
Timing can also vary depending on what you want to experience. If you want to see the beauty of the jungle along with wildlife than the best time to visit is right after the monsoons season.
However, anyone visiting the national park in India never wants to miss a meet with the king of these jungles, the Royal Bengal Tiger. If you also want the same than plan your visit from March to April. Summer starts to arrive during these months and water bodies in most of these parks start shrinking.
Limited availability of water bodies creates greater opportunities for a wild encounter with the big cats as they come out of the deep forest to drink water or hunt animals around these water bodies.
On the other hand, these months are not so hot compared to May and June making it easier to take a wildlife safari in jungles.
